Let’s catch up. I’ve missed you.

Well, it’s been a wild two weeks! Between my awesome new job and final projects for three classes, let’s just say there’s been no time to feel bored. So what have I been up to?

I made a lighting fixture out of birch veneer strips. (It lives in my guest room now.)

I designed a lighting  plan for a theoretical Downtown LA loft.

PS. I love these table lamps I used in the lighting layout!

I redesigned my living room. (Stay tuned for a low budget “how-to” living room makeover, with a partial execution of this plan!)

I created a repeating pattern with gouache paint.

I finished a full rendering of Mies van der Rohe’s Barcelona Pavilion.

And I bought an awesome second-hand drafting table. After a little elbow grease it’s as good as new! I’ll be spending the better part of the next three month at this set up.

I’m looking forward to getting back to regular blogging again. I’ve missed you! Have you missed me?

These quotes from my Color Theory class:

  • “Color is a basic need… Like fire and water, a raw material, indispensable to life.” – Fernand Leger
  • “Color belongs to our being, maybe each one has his own.” – Le Corbusier

A date night with the hubby and the best oysters ever at this place in Silverlake.
